Eroded terrain for Nowekat's DesertOnline curved roads map
« on: June 22, 2020, 02:17:40 PM »



Get it here:

From the included readme:

This map_h.tga is specifically for Nowekat's Desert Online curved roads map, available here:

https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,60283.0.html

It *may* work for the stock Desert Online map, but I've not checked this myself.

The stock map_h--and by extension Nowekat's essentially similar one--has the principal river valley as far too sharply angular. It's as though it was just yesterday chiseled out. In reality, such ancient mountains as found in most of Africa have been rather eroded over the aeons. This is my interpretation of a more representative geology/geography.

All over this map I've made a number of lesser alterations to smooth out the rougher bits, and reduce the implausiblity of the more 'cartoonish' areas.


As always, this work is offered for use by all in any way, without restriction.
